So Teach For Malaysia threw an iftar (breaking fast for Ramadhan) event at their office. It was great to be back and meet my colleagues as well!

Mingling session with other Fellows.
We did a bit of mingling and later ushered to a briefing session about what to expect during Institute (it's a 2-month intensive teaching program) and the Fellowship.
Brian, Training Director, talked about what to expect during Institute. Of how it is going to be a safe environment for us to learn about teaching and how it will be different when we're on the Fellowship.
Ashaari talked about our placement and pre-Institute assignment.
Dzameer asked us about what sort of legacy do we plan to leave once we're done with the Fellowship. Also what sort of legacy we plan to leave as a cohort. Interesting stuff to think about.
Half of the 2014 Fellows. Most of us are still overseas.
Overall it was a great experience to meet all these like-minded individuals. Also it takes the pressure of making friends during the first day of Institute! :P
